This past Christmas Tony gave me one of the most fantastic presents I've ever received: an iPhone 5. Not only was this wildly generous, it was also massively unexpected, because I still had about 27 months left to go at the time on the contract on my previous cell phone, which meant that in addition to getting me an iPhone, he had to buy out the remainder of my old cell's contract plan.
I have a beloved Canon DSLR that I've use for both my work and many of the photos I take of things in my daily life, but there are time - many times - when it can be more practical and/or handier to simply slip your cell phone into your purse or pocket and use it as your go-to (or secondary) camera when out and about (or trying to capture a very camera shy cat - yes, Miss Stella, I'm talking about you - doing something adorable at home).
Following on the heels of wanting an iPhone for it's terrific photography capabilities, I've been hankering to join, and share pictures on, Instagram for ages now. Blogger after wonderful blogger that I follow seemed to already be on Instagram, and I'll admit, I was feeling a touch left out. As such, once my feet came back down to the ground again after receiving my new iPhone (my first ever, I should mention) last December, pretty much the first thing that I did was to join Instagram.
In the months since then, I've followed many of the aforementioned bloggers there, and have been so touched by all of those folks who have already followed me. I really want to connect with more of you there, so today I'm formally inviting you to follow me on Instagram.
Please let me know if you do in the comments (with your Instagram handle - I'm @chronicallyvintage) so that I can be sure to follow you back.
Though I still very much feel like I have a ton to learn about iphoneography, I'm educating myself more on this topic every day and likewise taking snaps as often as possible. My favourites of which end up on my Instagram feed, where you'll see photos of everything from Annie and Stella to me in vintage outfits, thrifted treasures to the beautiful landscapes that surrounds us here in British Columbia.
I cannot thank Tony enough for giving me my first iPhone, which in turn allowed me to finally join Instagram and connect with all of you there at long last. Best Christmas gift EVER!!! :)
